Europa League results

Europa results. Mixed night for English teams.

Social Media

Yes Lacazette!

Sorry guys, I can't find much pictures of the matches (Europa League isn't like, Champions League saturation over here)so I'm trying experiments with various twitter posts to bring the flavour of Europa to the post. The EUFA Europa League account on twitter makes the coverage fun and engaging

Gent 1- 0 Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs have it all to do now... at Wembley!

The only highlight of the match, tbh. Spurs were sloppy

Manchester United 3- 0 St Etienne

Zlatan got a hattrick

Pogba played against Pogba in the match. One is Paul Pogba, £100m midfielder, face of Adidas and Manchester United. The other is a defender for St Etienne

I see the resemblance

Wait, Pogba wears braces? Wow, didn't know

OP: Done! My fingers have chilblains on them and it's hard to type. Any news to share, share here! If FFF isn't posted *nudges mod* you can use this as an FFF post too, because I miss it!

Someone new at the helm would probably be good for Arsenal, not that Wenger has treated them badly over the years

Using this as an FFAF post..

So, my original supervisor at one of the unis I applied to quit her job and I was left with a free application and no supervisor. I had to email like, 20 other people but thankfully I ended up getting two supervisors, one from the French dept, the other from the musicology dept. I had a Skype interview with the musicology guy earlier this week and it went really well.

And the supervisor at another uni asked if I could switch to a July entry so this means I'll have to wait till April to find out if I'm starting a doctoral degree or not.

Also, the teams I support suck.

Oh man, that must have been so shitty. I had an excellent supervisor for my MA thesis and I feel like I let him down with my thesis, lol. I mean, I got a Merit but still. But I know a number of people whose supervisors just left the country and they were helpless. Luckily, my course convenor and the department made sure to let us know that we could get their help if our supervisors were terrible.

I suppose with the PhD, it's harder cause it's three-four years of supervision, but I'm glad I did the Skype interview. My supervisor was really enthusiastic about my topic so it was a real boost.

I tried being upbeat about Arsenal... a lost cause. :/ It looks much more like the end of the road for Arsene now. Surely Alexis is leaving- he has to. Paparazzi are following him through airports today.

I dunno, the problem is that Alexis is getting too much attention. While he is scoring goals, there have been many matches in which he's done fuck all, compared to Bug Eyes and got 1/98 of the criticism. I hope he doesn't leave us, of course. I think, arguably, Lolo is more important. He got injured and we capitulated.

OT, but at least you lot care about the EL, unlike Spurs. Hope you guys go all the way. Between Mou and Kloppo, it's nice to see English teams do well in the EL. It's one of Poch's biggest shortcomings, qualifying for Europe and not caring about it.

Also, can we officially call Clatters a mercenary now? Not that he never was one, having an agent and going to that Ed Sheeran concert and all. RIP one of the better refs in the PL. Now, if only Mike Dean could fuck to some place like China, I'd be happy.

Yes. That was bizarre to me. Out of nowhere he's suddenly off to Saudi Arabia - a footballing backwater, imo, and all for money, connections in high places, etc. as far as I can see. He's going for the FIFA 5-star hotel lifestyle.

It's the only way it makes sense. The PL is far more prestigious.

The Clattenburg thing reminds me of Phil Collins. People in the UK think Collins is a mega twat, people in other countries love him.

Lol, Marina Hyde wrote a column about how she'd miss Clattenburg. He hasn't reached Phil Collins levels of hate yet.

I think people in America like Phil Collins, if I'm not wrong, but I know a lot of people who think he's a massive hypocrite for singing a shitty ballad about poverty and then voting Tory.

I never understood the Phil Collins hate, it was there in the '80s before he said he would leave if Labour won. It's very disproportionate.

Probably because he put out crap like Sussudio and trying to do white-boy funk which ended up with him ripping off Prince.

Also, I think people hate him because he's inferior to Peter Gabriel.
